    ..Also, CTL-mediated death caused as much FA release as death by disruption of cells by freeze-thawing. The released oleic acid may be sufficient to promote secondary apoptotic responses after CTL-induced trauma...

    J Leukoc Biol 86:701-12. 2009
    ..We conclude that extracellular PLRP2 lipase is unable to directly augment the cytotoxicity that was lost by PLRP2 ablation and that after reevaluation, the question of what is PLRP2's role in CD8 T cells is still unanswered...

    Bryce N Alves
    Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno, NV 89557, USA
    Cell Biochem Funct 27:296-308. 2009
    ..We conclude (1) that lipid-dependent cytotoxicity, promoted by the lipase PLRP2 and colipase, will kill tumor cells and (2) that more than PLRP2 alone is required for lipid-dependent cytotoxicity mediated by CTLs...
